Shipping is a big concern for most people including myself, I use The US Post Office and Priority next day shipping, so far we have had a 99.9 percent success getting the order to its destination the day after ordering. As long as I get the order to the post office before they close, it will make the last truck and you will get the shipment the next day.
Now, about the price.
I only want to break even on the shipping, my job is to raise and sell worms.
Depending on where I send them, it changes the price some, Basic 1-2 pounds is 5.25 to alot of in state.
Add 70 cents to any order for conformation.
Pay pal charges me about 1.00 per 30.00
now we are at the 7.00 mark give or take .50
Then add in the .45 for the shipping bag
and you are at 7.50-8.00
then you have tape, ink, paper, handling, gas, time and tracking, dont forget customer service and responding to phone and emails.
I think that is worth the 8.50 that I charge from 1-4 pounds
or 11.00 over 4 pounds.
NOTE: You do not need a Paypal account to use paypal, Your Credit card is processed by Paypal, but you do not need to set up an account to pay.
I have not had one problem with paypal, and have used them for about 10 years or more. At the check out, just press the pay by paypal, then the next screen gives you the option, to use paypal,set up an account(takes less than 5 minutes.)or just pay with a credit card.
Jan.2013________sorry, the post office has raised their rate, tax's have gone up, the bags I use to ship has gone up. I have no choice but to raise my price. now 9.50 from 1-3 pounds and 12.50 from 3-9 pounds
